More than 100 Iowa Democratic elected officials and leaders have endorsed state Sen. Liz Mathis’ campaign for the Iowa U.S. House 1st District seat.
Mathis announced earlier this week she will challenge Marion Republican Rep. Ashley Hinson in 2022.
“These leaders know that Iowa families, small businesses, and communities deserve better than the broken promises and political games we’re seeing in Washington, D.C., and I’m glad to have them with me in this race,” Mathis said.
Mathis, who has served in the Iowa Senate for 10 years, has been endorsed by 14 Democratic colleagues and 34 state representatives. Endorsers include Linn County Supervisors Ben Rogers and Stacey Walker, Linn County Recorder Joan McCalmant and Treasurer Sharon Gonzalez as well as former legislator and current member of the Cedar Rapids City Council Tyler Olson, and Ann Poe of the Cedar Rapids City Council.
